A mistake?
How do you mistake a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, which was supposed to be a safe haven and which identified itself on the map by sharing its GPS information with American and Afghan officials?
The bombing was so bad that 22 people were killed and 37 were wounded.  And it continued long after someone should have realized they were making a "mistake."
President Obama has apologized to Doctors Without Borders and the president of Afghanistan for what happened.  But that doesn't excuse why the incident happened in the first place.
It's not just the latest in a series of "mistakes" made by the U.S. government and the military.  It may be the worst ever.
I am deeply ashamed to know that "my" government does things like this . . . 
I can't say any more.
